This is a blend of black teas to create a Lapsang Suchong that is both deep and smoky but silky and light.

It lies between the rich texture and heady aroma of our Tarry Lapsang and the elegant subtleties of our Rare Lapsang Souchong. Deep notes of peat and malt like a fine whisky with a rich smoky aroma.

The smoky scent comes from the traditional method of smoking the tea over pine wood in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian China. This is not a flavouring or an oil that you might find in industrial bags, but a real smoked tea beautifully crafted.

It can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Cost per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
